My Navy career was varied and interesting, it was the best job I ever had. I was not in during a time of war and most women never saw service onboard a ship during my enlistment. I was assigned to Naval Administrative Command, Great Lakes, Illinois; (NAC GLakes). When I first arrived at Great Lakes, I worked as a guard checking identification (ID’s) of everyone who entered the base. When I wasn’t working as a guard, it was my duty to clean the building. Once I passed my test to become a yeoman (secretary), I worked for the JAG office (Judge Advocate General), ours was a very small office, not remotely like you see on television. We did the same things however, applying the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) to sailors who had been caught doing something wrong. This was most often done at Captain’s Mast, but also at trials for severe punishment. My job was to go to Captain’s Mast and trials and take notes on each count and transcribe them when done. I learned a lot while working there and we tried to make it a fun place to work.
